Abatement

What if I am re-employed in the public service?

If you are considering taking up employment with another public service organisation you should mention to your prospective employer that you are receiving a United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority pension. Within the public service there is an abatement rule that indicates that the aggregate of the individual's new salary and their pension from a public service pension scheme should not exceed their pre-retirement salary. However, the rules are complex and this will not be the case in all public service organisations, but it is advisable to check the position before agreeing to take up the appointment.
